Originally trained as a painter, John Holloway begun his photographic work in 1978 photographing the South Downs and has continued in this area for more than 25 years, studying time and change on the Sussex landscape.

Holloway works from a high vantage point, photographing from a light aircraft so as to view the ground in low relief. His interest lies in the traces of man’s activities in the form of tracks and pathways, fences and furrows, as well as archaeological remains and the ancient hill figures.

His book Downlandscapes, consists of images of the landscape’s form and texture which are best revealed in black and white.
